The origins the old family name Boulange can be found within medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Boulange family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Boulange was an occupational name for a baker. Looking back even further, we found the name was originally derived from the Old French word boules, which referred to the balls of dough the baker made and baked into buns and loaves.

Boulange Early Origins



The surname Boulange was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where the family has held a family seat since ancient times.
